What Neutral/Axis Countries and Occupied Areas were vital for the German War Effort?

Postby ForrestIII » 16 Jul 2017 18:00

As someone very interested in Germany's battles in 1944, I was wondering how the loss of so many economic partners and subjects during the course of the year affected the German Economy. There is the usual example of Romania and its oil, but there are obviously more. I was wondering if my fellow members could go through country by country in Europe and mention what essential contributions if any, each made to Germany?
Logic would be my Lifeblood if I had any. Unfortunately I just have regular blood.

Some might argue Denmark was important

Here's one example
